Here’s my speculation on what shows/movies The Mandalorian could be setting up.
-Rebels live action (Ashoka-Rex-Ezra-Thrawn)
-The MANDALORIAN Jedi War / KOTOR
-Luke Jedi academy
The Mandalorian, while being its own story, will affectively have backdoor pilot episodes for these shows / movies.
I’m up for anything, but I’d say the first two are most likely.
Really nervous about what Rosario Dawson will look and sound like as Ahsoka. The amount of scrutiny leveled that day will be enormous.
Noticed the voice cast of Resistance look very much like their respective characters, so the idea of potentially transitioning animated characters to live action must have been on their minds. I’d actually like more of this series in animated form on Disney+.
With the state of theaters right now, I’m glad there was already so many Disney+ projects in the works. Sounds like that is only increasing now.
This type of content is what I’ve waited decades for!
